was sort of against itself in the last minutes when they were calling ohio and karl rove almost himself had a bit of a tantrum saying that there was no way that ohio could have gone for president obama, megan kelly had to go back there and talk to the folks who actually had the facts and say, in fact, that ohio did, in fact, go to president obama. i think there is some soul searching going on there. i think that's correct. in 2011 with that exit of glen beck, who, of course, went on to his own network. and now with sarah palin, kind of the declining fortunes of the tea party and this inability of the tea party and the conservative right to find purchase and find a wider audience. you know, rush limbaugh's power is in this called 20 million viewer -- listeners that he has. i don't know if it's 20 million, 15 million. it might be 2 million. but i think democrats have been very expert at putting rush limbaugh and fox news at the head of the party, and you haven't seen much push back from republicans. in fact, you see ruby, of course, going out there today and sort of going to rush limbaugh and
karl rove is here with us next. gregg: a little boy in alabama still being held hostage. this is the 7th day as new details emerge about this suspect. >> we can't physically do anything. all we can do is meet up and pray. >> he's coming out. we don't know when and we won't know why probably. when vegetabls reach the peak of perfection. the vegetables do. at green giant, we pk vegetables only when they're perfect. then freeze them fast so they're are as nutritious as fresh. [ green giant ] ho ho ho. ♪ green giant but they have to use special care in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula kills 99.99% of odor causing bacteria and helps dissolve stains, cleaning in a better way than brushing with toothpaste. that's why i recommend using polident.

in that inaugural address. you know, nobody has used the word yet, partly because i think karl rove fouled it after 2004 when he proclaimed there was a political realignment in this country. but i think there has been a political realignment. it's an obama realignment. and as i've heard you say before, i think this is now a center left country. the president's right on all these issues. republicans are kind of having a nervous breakdown, don't know what to do about it, so they're playing these kinds of games. >> well, it is our new theme here on the program. yes, we do say let's get to work. but let's call it what it is. this is a center left country. the issues are very progressive that people are polling very strongly in favor of. and another theme out of the republican party is victimization. i mean, you've got boehner and you got ryan and you got limbaugh. all seem to think that president obama is out to just destroy the gop. what a weak presentation of where they are, i would say. >> well, first of all, it would be impossible to victimize rush limbaugh. he is the great -- he is the great guy w
to say we've had enough of that. >> myrrh you can do and akin. last night karl rove who is now an umpire, he agreed and said republicans must have more than an anti-obama message. let's listen to the oracle, the architect. >> i think he's right. he was talking about todd akin of missouri and richard mourdock of indiana and their terrible comments on abortion. the republican can't be in mindless opposition to president obama. it has to offer a vision of the future that is attractive and compelling for americans to associate with. >> the problems is that the vision jindal and rove are talking about hasn't changed. only their messaging has. while jindal talks a good game paul krugman pointed out yesterday jindal is proposing eliminating louisiana's incomes tax which is paid primarily by the wealthy and replace it with a sales tax designed to hit the middle class and working class. you're doing the same old hoover stuff, tax the people that get hit the hardest by economic recession and exempt the top penal who make incomes, big incomes. >> but that's not necessarily been born out in states l
was that the message beat the money. we were dramatically outspent by karl rove and big polluters. we had the public on our side. voters wanted leaders who confront the challenge of climate change. we saw attacks on senators in montana and ohio on their energy policies. we saw attacks from mitt romney, heather wilson in new mexico. those attacks proved unsuccessful. to put hard numbers on this -- the money spent by the affiliated crossroad organization only represented seven percent of the money spent on winning races -- just seven percent. contrast that with the record -- 83% of the money we spent was spent on winning races.one great example is in massachusetts. we were touting scout brown -- oftt brown's abysmal record turning around and voting consistently for taxpayer handouts to those industries that are already making your record profits at the pump. pre and post polling from those ads showed that his record dropped among independent a shocking 21%. so i offer that as an anecdote of powerful the ties are in terms of public mind of who they trust in elected office and who they are taking their
about how we need more revenues if we're going to get this budget balanced. karl rove said this morning that revenues are actually higher than they were in 2008, and we checked, and he's right, if you look at the 2007 numbers a little over 2.56 trillion, 2.524 in 2008, and the projected revenue for fiscal 2013, 2.6 trillion. alan, so when the president says we really got to have more taxes, how should the media treat that? >> is the numbers we're looking at right now, that's going to solve our problems as if there is nothing else we should do. republicans agree now we have to at least raise taxes on the top one percent, this is not even a debate at this point. the notion that you can do just one thing and that solves all our revenue problems has been discounted even by republicans who realize that's what we have to do right now. jon: jim, no debate. i think they realize that obama hald alowe bam obama had call the cards to play on the fiscal cliff. a think tank run by the former president says if we got economic growth to 4% we could balance the budget. then you get into technology, inn
